An 8 m3 (280 ft.3) crushed limestone rockbed was tested to determine the location of a simulated solar heat charge within the rockbed and the time required for passive discharge by conduction through a concrete floor. An equation for computing the location of peak temperature in the rockbed is compared with the data. Approximately two days were required for passive discharge of the heat from the insulated rockbed by conduction and free convection.
